Testimonials for EMS1 Academy

“We are a department compiled of volunteers and part-time personnel. As our first online training solution, we searched for a system that could provide additional ways to properly training each department member, which EMS1 Academy certainly fulfilled. EMS1 Academy has a great feature within their platform for SOG updates to be reviewed, recorded and tracking for such tasks. We are starting to use EMS1 Academy more and the biggest impact will be the distribution and review of SOGs and procedures in a timely manner.”

– Chief Jeff Calicoat

Tipp City EMS, OH

“We have 84 squads under our medical direction, and we use [EMS1 Academy] to deliver the same consistent training message across our health system. We use the EMS training to review and test our protocols to get a consistent message. We also have enrolled the fire programs… to help fulfill the need for fire training for the fire chiefs under our medical direction.”

“Medic Monthly has excellent video footage that is specific to several topics we cover in class. The title of each video makes it easy to immediately put into action to better illustrate our ‘Death by PowerPoint’ lectures. As students learn differently, the video format brings another method to increase learning potential in our students. The scenario sections, followed by Dr. Katz’s play-by-play narration, help to drive home relevant points. If you’re looking for a vote, Medic Monthly is the best product I’ve seen for supplemental use in the classroom.”

– Captain Malcolm Bomford, Lead Instructor

“One of the primary reasons we chose to train using EMS1 Academy was the platform’s ease of use. Our personnel are able to easily complete course training and our administrator can simply track compliance and pull reports to view course completion records. Compared to our previous training solution, EMS1 Academy is much more streamlined and the course content is just what we need to provide proper training for our agency. We would definitely recommend this training solution to anyone looking for a valuable training resource for their agency.”

“In the past, getting these guys to training was like pulling Saddam out of his spider hole. Now they ask for the Medic Monthly. This has been an enormous time saver for me and great training for the crews at Kennedy Space Center/Cape Canaveral Air Force Station Fire/Rescue.”

– Larry Davis, Paramedic/EMS Battalion Chief SGS-322

Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral, FL

“I am the associate professor and department chair for the EMS Academy at Palm Beach Community College and we have been using the Medic Monthly series going on 2 years. My approach towards EMS education is on active learning. First, we lecture on a topic, then discuss it, and then the video gives the students a chance to see how a call of that nature would unfold. These methods have proven extremely successful in our program. Without the ability to actually SEE a call unfold, and the instructional commentary by Dr. Katz, I don’t see how they might tackle these real common, difficult calls.”

– Mary Kelley, RN/EMT-P, Associate Professor/Department Chair

Palm Beach State College, Lake Worth

“As an EMS educator for my department, I have seen countless ideas come and go regarding an offsite training system that is both practical and user friendly. In the past, the fire service has seen television training series and recorded video tape, as well as some digital media. However, [EMS1 Academy] has accomplished what others just talk about; a true interactive and time manageable training system. The online education series provides our employees with a comprehensive training experience… Furthermore, the system provides pretesting and streaming video (instead of video tape), as well as post-testing and administrator interaction. Additionally, you can customize your department’s website and track how your staff is doing over the Internet. What a great investment!”
